WRC Standard Flood Frequency Guidelines
The Water Resources Council has issued a set of guidelines for determining flood frequency at gaged locations. The need for such guidelines is examined. Application of these guidelines...

Reducing Hydrologic Parameter Uncertainty
A methodology is introduced that can be used in hydrologic frequency analysis to reduce the parameter uncertainty. The methodology consists of developing generalized values of the parameters...

Load-Deflection Behavior of Restrained R/C Skew Slabs
A method is presented for determining the complete load-deflection behavior of reinforced concrete skew slabs restrained at the edges and subjected to uniformly-distributed loading. The...

Decisions Under Violation of Regression Normality
Two water resources engineering questions are considered to study the statistical effect and associated loss of incorrectly assuming normality in linear regression analysis. Monte Carlo...

Flood Analysis by SMEMAX Tranformation - A Review
A SMEMAX (Small, Median, Maximum) transformation proposed by Nadavia Bethlahmy normalizes skewed population so that the transformed value representing a flood for a given return period...

Thermal Stresses in Skew Bridge by Model Test
This paper briefly describes the development of a finite layer element program for computing stresses and displacements resulting from nonlinear temperature gradients in continuous skew...

Presentation of Longitudinal Dispersion Data
It is proposed that deviations from Gaussianity of observed profiles of the concentration of a solute in a cloud as it passes the measuring station in a river, estuary or similar flow...

Log Pearson Type 3 Distribution: A Generalized Evaluation
A generalized study of log Pearson type 3 distribution (LP) is performed in terms of the dimensionless variate which has a population mean of unity. The bounds of LP and different forms...

Log Pearson Type 3 Distribution: Method of Mixed Moments
Two new methods of moments (MO) which do not use the sample skewness coefficient (CS) are evolved for fitting log Pearson type 3 distribution (LP). The two current MO methods which use...

Disaggregation of Streamflow Volumes
A disaggregation model, which differs from those developed by Valencia and Schaake (VS) and Mejia and Rousselle (MR) (referred to as the HB model), was developed specifically to preserve...

Combined-Load Buckling of Orthotropic Skew Plates
Buckling analysis of orthotropic skew plates subjected to a combination of in-plane edge loads has been presented. The Fourier-series solution satisfies all the boundary conditions of...

Anisotropic Skew Plates and Grids
A discrete element method of analysis for the bending of an anisotropic skew-plate-and-grid-beam system is presented. The distinguishing features are (1)The representation of an anisotropic...

Thermal Stress Analysis of Continuous Skew Bridge
A finite layer element analysis of stresses and displacements resulting from nonlinear temperature gradients in continuous skew slab-girder bridges is developed. A computing technique,...

Skewed Bridges with Intermediate Transverse Bracings
Intermediate transverse bracings may be neglected in the space frame calculations when computing the stresses in the main girders and the values of the reactions, as they have a negligible...

Map Skew
Flood frequency estimation using the recommended log-Pearson type III analysis requires an estimate of the skew coefficient. The sample estimate of skewness may be inaccurate when the...

Concrete Beams with Small Opening under Torsion
Based on the familiar skew bending model, methods of analyses are presented in this paper for predicting the strength of plain and reinforced concrete beams that are subjected to torsion...

Macro Element Analysis of a Skew Plate in Bending

Skew Reinforcement in Slabs
In this paper, Wood and Armer.s equation have been further modified to improve their physical interpretation and application. Also, it is shown that the formulas for the skew reinforcement...

Flood-Frequency Analyses with Prerecord Information
Monte Carlo experiments were performed on each of several procedures for treating prerecord flood information in flood-frequency analyses. The performance of each method was judged by...

Continuous Skew Orthotropic Plate Structures
A series solution has been developed to analyze continuous skew orthotropic plate structures subjected to laterally applied uniform and concentrated (patch) loads. Various practical skew...
